Peru, Nebraska – Choirs from Auburn, Fremont and Nebraska City visited the Peru State College campus to participate in a Choral Invitational. The Invitational took advantage of the Performing Arts Center’s newly remodeled space and culminated in five choirs performing on the historic stage that evening.
Dr. Matt Hill, associate professor of music and director of choral activities at Peru State, writes, “Thank you to my colleagues Stephanie Stanek (Nebraska City), Andrew Seuferer (Auburn), and Mark Harman (Fremont) for bringing your choirs to campus and contributing to a wonderful day of music making.”
“I’m also incredibly proud of Peru State choristers for their leadership, and for their musicianship. It was an invigorating event for all involved, and I look forward to making this an annual tradition at Peru State.”
The Choral Invitational’s concert featured the Auburn High School Choir, the Fremont High School Choir, the Nebraska City High School Choir, the Peru State Women’s Choir and the Peru State Concert Chorale. The final choir of the evening was a combined choir, featuring all five of the high school and college choirs, bringing more than 200 voices to the stage.
Peru State College is inviting alumni and friends to the ceremonial grand opening of the Performing Arts Center featuring musical performances, the debut of a Peru State oral history documentary, delicious food and tours of the newly renovated space. RSVP is requested for the May 3 event.
